The ionic recognition properties of neutral oxothiomolybdenum wheels can be changed from anionic to cationic through ionization of the internal aquo ligands. In the solid state, [Mo8O8S8(OH) 10(H2O)]2- (1) interacts with two Cs + cations to give a close supramolecular host-guest arrangement. Such interactions appear to be maintained in solution as a labile association.
